It only takes ONE HOUR of disaster preparedness activity EACH MONTH to be 2 WEEKS READY for disasters.

Preparation for disasters may seem daunting or intimidating, but it’s actually simple and easy! This Prepare in a Year book will help walk you through twelve (12) important steps for disaster preparedness. It’s as simple as completing one activity a month. By the end of 12 months, you’ll be much better prepared! Remember that everything you do to be prepared will help you in small emergencies, like a flat tire on your car, as well as large disasters, like a volcano eruption. Think of disaster preparedness not as a checkbox, something to do once and never again, but rather a continual process of learning, restocking supplies, and encouraging others to be prepared.


  • Learn about everyday steps to take for disaster preparedness
  • Take a preparedness step each month of the year to be 2 weeks ready when a disaster strikes
  • It doesn't need to be complicated! Small steps over a year add up!
